recommended request timeout value in application gateway backend setting for WAF v1 and v2

We are using Application Gateways with WAF v1 and v2 configurations. We have kept the request timeout value in the backend setting to 30 min.
is this recommended? and what is the recommended timeout value

we also want to know, if we keep the request timeout to 30min, is there any security risk associated with it?

Hello @karipeshibani

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform,

If your application can take more than 30 seconds to respond then you have to increase this value. If not there's no need to change it.

I don't see security risks in configuring to 30 minutes, as long your application needs it.

I hope this helps!
